Kinds mentioned within the article:
“You can by no means be overdressed. There’s no such factor. The people who I seemed as much as in music—Prince and David Bowie and Elvis and Freddie Mercury and Elton John—they’re such showmen. As a child it was utterly mind-blowing. Now I’ll placed on one thing that feels actually flamboyant, and I don’t really feel loopy carrying it. I feel if you happen to get one thing that you simply really feel superb in, it’s like a superhero outfit. Garments are there to have enjoyable with and experiment with and play with. What’s actually thrilling is that every one of those traces are simply sort of crumbling away. While you take away ‘There’s garments for males and there’s garments for ladies,’ when you take away any boundaries, clearly you open up the sector in which you’ll play. I’ll go in retailers generally, and I simply discover myself trying on the ladies’s garments pondering they’re superb. It’s like something—anytime you’re placing boundaries up in your individual life, you’re simply limiting your self.”
